Windows 7: Balanced vs high performance on desktop

Balanced vs high performance on desktop

Dunno why my pc is crashing while gaming or even hearing songs in balanced mode or with minimum processor state set below 25%. Now my question is what will happen if i chose High performance mode , will it cause any harm to my components , like shortening of life or something? If not then , can you tell what is actually causing the above mentioned problem? Is it actually the processor state or something else , i would like to add that it has happened only on 7 ( i tried 4 different versions on t\0/rrents :P ,trusted ones). I thought it may occur on vista too , but it didnt and same was for xp.

so again my questions are:
1) what is causing hangs and crashes in my 7
2) does it has something to do with processor state? If yes then what will be best mode with what % of processor state
